May 2017 - Celtic Eagle Performs At The Medina County Sea Of Youth Candlelight Vigil 

"The Celtic Eagle Pipe Band

You are just wonderful!  You add so much to our events.

Each member of the Celtic Eagle Pipe Band obviously puts so much effort into the performances: rehearsing, dressing appropriately, venturing to various venues, dragging instruments and paraphernalia. It’s not easy, but your audience does appreciate your efforts.

Many people comment each time you play for us about how much they enjoy seeing and hearing your band.  Some come to our events specifically to see you perform.

We all know (or try to keep up) with the awards received by your individual members and by the band in total.  You are absolutely amazing. 

Aside from all that – your members are very pleasant and cooperative.  It is the reason we chose you to be the one and only official band for the Scottish American Society

Thanks so much for all you do"

May 19, 2017 - For the third year in a row, Celtic Eagle Pipe Band was honored to perform at this year's Medina County Sea Of Youth's candlelight vigil; dedicated to the men and women in law enforcement. This annual event coincides with the Sea Of Blue National Police Week ceremonies, which pays special tribute to fallen law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. This candlelight vigil was organized three years ago by Trevor Satterwaite, a middle school student in Medina, as a way to show the support of today's youth to members of the law enforcement community. This community event continues to thrive, thanks to Trevor's dedication and hard work towards the support of law enforcement officers, and the sacrifices they make to protect and serve.
